7:45am
centuries. what makes this different and why are we calling for the labeling. >> they have only been in the diet for about 20 years. this is a process done in the lab of taking the genetic material from one species and forcing it in to another in ways that can't occur in nature. it is very new. taking the genes in bacteria and putting it in corn. the corn itself is resistant to bugs. that's an example. that type of food actually is on store shelves right now as of this summer the first genetically engineered sweet corn. it has this insecticide within it and people have a right to know about that. they want to know. people in 50 country have information about genetically engineered foods. people in california and across the country are saying
7:46am
genetically engineered food should be labeled here, too. it's a right to know what is in our food. we have the largest health and environmentally health labor groups on the side and opposed to 37 is the world's largest pesticide companies who unleashed an ad campaign of deception on california voters. >> let's talk about the campaign. one we have seen says it's selective in what is required to be labeled. one of their examples, dog food needs to be labeled but meat does not. what is your response. >> it's a dishonest ad campaign. if there is question about that, they were forced to yank the ad off the air last week because they misrepresented sanford university's affiliation. it's desperate to convince us we shouldn't have the right to choose the food we are eating and feeding our families. >> people say this should be dealt with on a federal level and not state by state and put california at food producers at a disadvantage. >> there is a huge effort to
7:47am
deal with this, over 1 million people sent petitions asking for labeling. 19 states tried to legislate including california. >> if we pass this, isn't this labeling still in the realm of the feds and fda? wouldn't they say take it to court and say you can't do this. >> we are confident this will stand up in court. these labels will a -- other states will move forward with legislative and initiative attempts. >> you say that you want to inform people that this is going on. is there a feeling that this food is not healthy? or because -- again, we put labels on and put the ingredients in, what is it about this that triggered your
7:48am
interest in law to tell people about this? >> we do believe genetically engineered foods are a problematic, health concerns, leads to allergies and health effects showing up in the studies that have been done. environmental problems. yesterday, the new york times had a story about the massive increases in pesticide use over the last 15 years of genetically engineered crops, tied to the crops. >> is your goal to end genetically modified foods? >> it's to give consumers the choice, that's how the market is suppose to working. we decide, voting with dollars, making choices about what we eat and feed families, about what we want in the food system. >> the bottom line for families listening, is this going to increase the cost at the grocery store? the no on campaign says yes. it's going to cost hundreds of extra dollars a year to require the labels. >> they have no evidence to back that up.
7:49am
we think no increased cost will come of the law, it didn't happen in europe and didn't happen when we asked for trans fats. it gives them 18 months to do it. it's a straight forward labeling law. >> yes on 37 campaign. we will look at the other side coming up in our next half hour. local baseball fan, it's not the time to panic yet. >> the playoffs started off on the wrong foot for the green and gold. today is another day. the highlights in the weekend early edition when we get back. their postseason openers. dan hurd: when i was a child, california was a leader in education funding. erika derry: and the fact that california isn't making it a priority frustrates me. dan hurd: i'm ashamed of that, and i don't want this to continue for my daughter. brenda kealing: prop 38 is going to bring a lot of money to our schools.
7:50am
suzan solomon: the money stays at the school site. cade derry: what i would really like to see is that the teachers... that were laid off come back to the school. navaz hurd: a smaller class size. navaz hurd: as a mom i want that. as a teacher i want that.

7:54am
saturday. there is a wide perception that president obama lost to mitt romney in the debate. >> now the first crucial encounter is over. everybody has their score cards up, so what do the candidates need to do in the coming days? we put that question to mayor willie brown and joe. here is what they had to say. >> mr. obama has to reestablish his dominance on the intellectual side and dominance on the accuracy side and has to reestablish his dominance on the excitement side. can he do that? i don't know. >> mitt romney? >> mitt romney has to keep going. keep plowing through and talking the same stuff and the same way. he was concise and crisp. he was like the ceo and chief that he aspires to be. >> this is the first time we recalled seeing former massachusetts governor mitt romney show up on stage. he has been avoiding, you wouldn't have known he was the
7:55am
governor in massachusetts. >> he was very proud to talk about what happened with the school system in massachusetts. >> and health care. >> very proud to talk about health care and more importantly, when they asked the question about what would you do to change the environment in the corporation, in washington. he literally talked about how he did it in massachusetts with 70% of the people being democrats who had the job. >> what do the conservatives do and this is mitt romney's move to the middle? >> they will grint their teeth and appreciate it as long as he is moving upward in the polls. we haven't seen if he is going to get bounce at all. >> theyit's the al davis philosophy, just win baby. believe he gets the bump. i believe the bump will come
7:56am
from the crisp nature of his responses. he sounded like the common man. he didn't sound like bane capital exploiting everybody who was part of a 97% for the 3%. he sounded like the guy from the streets. he sounded like the guy that i walk by almost everyday working on a job on the city payroll. >> conservatives want him to go at obama, to express anger and frustration. that's a lot what he did. it's amazing. i never thought i would hear willie brown's people say that. i would grab the segment and turn it in to a commercial. >> i'm being very candid. as a matter of fact for example you readily column, you know i said these are the things mitt romney needs to do in order to be competitive in the debate. apparently he read it. much more to come >> of course, he did. i'm sure. that's like first thing in the
7:57am
morning. >> on the fashion front, mr. brown said that barack obama's tie was not the right shade and american flag lapel pin was smaller than mitt romney's not a good sign. thought tie was fine. i think the think was that mitt romney did so well. >> i would agree with you. there it was interesting, is listened to half of -- i licensed to half of it. it was a different perception than when you watched it on television. >> it looked like mitt romney was schooling him, which didn't look flattering. >> considering most people get impressions from visuals, substance takes a backstage. >> we have a lot to come in next half hour. >> tragedy at a church of all places. what led to a bay area accident that took the life of a young girl. was one forever.

[ male announcer ] and it's not just these owners giving the volt high praise. volt received the j.d. power and associates appeal award two years in a row. ♪ meningitis outbreak has riso seven. the number of people killed in the u.s. in a rare
8:08am
meningitis outbreak has risen to seven. the centers for disease control and prevention says that the infection spread to more than 60 people across nine states. the outbreak has been link the to a steroids produced by a specialty pharmacy in massachusetts. that steroid, obviously, has been recalled. it's been a nice day yesterday. that was lovely for all the event around san francisco. >> thank you. we take the blame for the events, i'll take credit for this watered. we have potential for showers as we make the trans something from summer into autumn and eventually into some our rainiest months of the year. we have low clouds now across parts of the east bay, shore line, also going up to the plains, san raphael. western half of san francisco is overcast but the south bay is waking up to sunshine.
8:09am
from hayward to oakland, you have cloudy skies right now. wind are flat dead calm right now as we look toward viaca camp. see mound tim many. cooling trend begins today, mostly sunny skies, showers late tuesday. we at least put it into there as a possibility. stay tuned for that paul will have the latest on that this week, slightly blue grass -- love the name, don't you? >> fleet week today. if you are in the bay, the numbers will be in the low 60s. cooler but we'll get away with sunshine. out the door they, mostly sunny skies, for the coast, bay and inland, except for the clouds sticking to the shore line. satellite radar, low pressure that's spinning a beam in northern california will slowly work its way towards the shore. that low, as it gets closer to the shore line moves south of
8:10am
the bay area by tuesday. tuesday night, that wrap around moisture over the top half of the low might produce a shower or two for the pay area. we'll see. in the meantime, it will be nice. nice and mild for us in the bay area. if you are heading out, eureka is chilly. 54 degrees. diana, washington, what a difference a week makes. 81 degrees at fresno. it was 103 at this time last week. san francisco, you head out tomorrow, airport does not look like weather should be cause for the weather. partly cloudy skies for chicago and new yorkdenver, sunny. going to be very nice here, 73 degrees, 101 morgan hill at 76. peninsula will get some after we dispense with the low clouds. top out with highs in the low 70s. east bay, again, last weekend, we were talking about numbers
8:11am
that were well in excess of 100 degrees we are 30 degrees back of that today. san ramon and 680. 73 up in vallejo. 70 degrees. napa tops out at 71. bodega bay at 69. 61 in dali city. the look ahead looks like this. temperatures will cool down even more on monday. tuesday and wednesday, they bottom out. thursday, cool. i have not put it, as you can see, visually up there. this is the first mention that late tuesday and early wednesday, there is a chance at least of a few showers in the bay area. we'll wait for things to get a little bit closer to claire fight. next weekend, high pressure rebuild. saturday, we are back into the 80s. that's your weather. as for the news, let's check in at the interview desk with phil and ann. again, the question is,
8:12am
should california require labels on genetically modified food. >> we talked to people in favor of the idea and now let's hear from the no side. basically, the question is, why not allow or require this labeling? what's -- why not? the information is information. we have ingredients on there already. why not add this? >> this is really more about just labeling. this is about proposition 37. i know it's being promoted as a simple labeling measure but it's not. it will lead to a rise in shakedown lawsuits against grocery stores, bureaucracy, grocery bills. it contain as number of loopholes. >> let's talk about grocery bills because i think that's what's most important to people listening right now. food producers have to change their labels every two years. why not have them put that on there while they are at it?
8:13am
>> consumers would view a label under proposition 37 as a warning that something was wrong with the food. in fact, genetically modified food or genetically engineered ingredients are no different than any other type of ingreed yens, no different than any other type of crop. that's why they don't requiring laboring because the food and drug administration says that the foods are not materially different our bodies process them in the exact same way. >> californians, americans, let's be honest. when somebody is walking out of a supermarket with a can of energy drink and three bags of chips, they're going to eat whatever they want to eat. what actual percentage of the population is going to be affected by this, by what's coming into their chain. >> people are interested in their food. so are we. we want to provide fact-based information to consumers that
8:14am
have some basis in science. but even the proponents of prop 37 agree that would be putting skull and cross bones on the label. that's when the founder of the proposition says. scientists agree that genetically en neared food are safe. even the american medical association voted to say that there is no concern. >> but the concern is that there is not enough research being done, things like allergens and what not. these products have been around for a couple of decades about but maybe that's not enough. >> there have been studies done, more than 400 studies done. and as you pointed out, they have been in the food supply for decades.
8:15am
we have eaten trillions and trillions pound of genetically engineered food. this is about prop 37. don't believe me, but the overwhelming majority of editorial boards in california have urged voters to reject it. >> okay. we are talking a lot about labeling. >> right. >> you said you had other concerns. you said out of the gate that this was not just about labeling. what are the other ones? >> it was drafted by attorney. this will allow attorneys a brand new avenue to sue grocery store retails, family farmers alleging that they violated the terms of proposition 37 they can go ahead and not violate. >> that's what i'm saying. they would be following the law and they still could get sued that is the problem. that is the problem. the chronicle, in fact, ed board in their editorial said it would be costly for consumers and a legal nightmare
8:16am
for those who grow process or sell food. most people who look at this say that, you know, good intention don't necessarily result in a good ballot initiative even the sacramento bee said, even if you like labeling, you should oppose proposition 37 because that's just a bad law. it's sloppily drafted, poorly drafted and it will increase consumer grocery bill, state fair tax costs, labeling that make no sense and the most pernicious provision is the ability for the attorneys to file a lawsuit without proof. >> if this comes under the jurisdiction of the courts anyway, don't you think it's going to get tossed. >> right now, it's being passed. >> you can take it to court and say you don't have the ability to enforce it. >> first order of business is to not get to it that point. we hope to see it on november 6th. we believe that the more people
8:17am
know about proposition 37, the more they will reject it. they don't want shackdown lawsuit. and the measures don't make any sense overall. kathy fair banks, spokesperson for the opponents of prop 37. and we have some music fessville going on despite some heavy hearts. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

8:20am
opposing candidates for vice president face off. >> the sharp contrast in speaking style will be on display but will it really be worth watching? >> i think so. >> you do? we put that question to former mayor brown. >> this is pure entertainment value. nothing beats a vice- presidential debate because, you know, a great contrast in style, you have paul ryan who is going to come in there with all his facts and figures and joe biden will be tearing up or screaming at every other juncture. it is been be marvelous television. >> does anybody care about this? >> well, joe biden will make sure they do. joe biden will invariably give you enough shots so you will be able to quote him for the rest of the month. >> not going to be anywhere close to the biden and palin where everybody was marching into theaters. >> that was the highest rated
8:21am
debate. everybody wanted to see palin. paul ryan will not draw unless he takes off his shirt. >> paul ryan is a drag because he does not relate to anybody who was even in the room. >> this week, we saw moderate mitt appear. he went from being the conservative to we can get along, we can get along, health care plan, my time in massachusetts. ryan is still the conservative. won't the democrats try to draw him out saying this is when a romney-ryan ticket is about in. >> absolutely. joe biden for as placid as obama was, he is going to throw red meat at ryan. and it's going to be also about foreign policy which ryan has little experience. >> and then medicare. >> by the end of the debate,
8:22am
